The Nightmare before Brexit

... for that's what the next few months will be. Until we get to the True Hell of Brexit, we can still take time to rejoice and enjoy what we still have...

Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems, in a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams. For the story that you are about to be told, took place in the holiday worlds of old.

Boys and girls of every age

Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

WibbleAgain - 06 Dec 2018 15:03:35 (#3 of 5063)

I live in the hope that by the end of Tuesday, Brexit will be cancelled and A50 revoked the following day. Or the following week, month, year, I've not fussy.

Optimists survive better.

While shepherds watched Liam Fox by night

Their jaws all hit the ground

The trade he’d told us would be free

Cost 39 billion pound

(nicked from The New European)

FFS spent 15 minutes doing Away In A Manger on a Boris theme but the thread got closed and now I can't retrieve it. Gone! Fuck!

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Dec 2018 15:06:48 (#6 of 5063)

If it's any good, you'll remember it.

christmancurse - 06 Dec 2018 15:18:07 (#7 of 5063)

Come on xbod, try!

All I Want for Christmas is EU.

WibbleAgain - 06 Dec 2018 15:21:56 (#9 of 5063)

Me too. Sigh.

Eligelis - 06 Dec 2018 15:22:25 (#10 of 5063)

Away from that Brexit

Your policy's dead

Boris thinks otherwise,

But he's wrong in the head.

The stars of the EU

Are covered in fog

And that's caused by the waffle

Of Jacob Rees Mogg.

WibbleAgain - 06 Dec 2018 15:23:57 (#11 of 5063)

Very good.

guigal - 06 Dec 2018 15:28:58 (#12 of 5063)

Boris backs Remain. After a fashion, in his way.

"My brother Boris, (says Jo Johnson) who led the Leave campaign, is as unhappy with the government’s proposals as I am," ..."Indeed he recently observed that the proposed arrangements were 'substantially worse than staying in the EU.' (Politico 9/11/ 18)

Barnier has to reiterate, yet again, there will be no renegotiation:

But Baroness Chakrabarti said there would be!

breakfast - 06 Dec 2018 15:32:13 (#15 of 5063)

Not Brussels sprouts a new plan then?

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Dec 2018 15:32:31 (#16 of 5063)

Perhaps Barnier will give a different answer if Corbyn asks him.

HarveyRabbit - 06 Dec 2018 15:32:53 (#17 of 5063)

Barnier has to reiterate

"Accept the backstop or it's the cliff jump"

christmancurse - 06 Dec 2018 15:41:05 (#18 of 5063)

Does anyone object if I steal some of your Brexit carols for my placard on Tuesday?

christmancurse - 06 Dec 2018 15:42:24 (#19 of 5063)

I can credit the author(s) at the bottom, in tiny writing.

Theresa May's plan to let MPs veto Brexit backstop would 'rip up withdrawal agreement', Brussels warns

Prime Minister has claimed backstop 'is not automatic'

Anyone actually still believe she's actually trying to get a deal through?
